Word Theme: Government and Politics

Each level of Syllable Savvy Spelling has a different theme. The theme for Level 8 is government and political terms. In addition to learning spelling, roots and suffixes, students can analyze the use of words in their social context.


Helping Hints

Teaching with Syllable Savvy Spelling

  • The index in the back of the book lists the most common and helpful spelling rules.
  • Each lesson has 15 words, with space for five more words individualized to the student. These five words might include:
    • Previous spelling words that were missed
    • Words spelled incorrectly in the students' creative writing
    • Vocabulary words from other units of study.

  • The frequent use of root words such as "benefit" and "beneficiary" together increase both spelling and vocabulary.
